Design Decor & Disha | An Indian Design & Decor Blog

In today’s post on our Indian Art form series, I’m gonna talk about the art of paper cutting or better known as Sanjhi. Like the name itself suggests Sanjhi or paper cutting art is an art of paper cutting. The paper is cut in a way that the paper holds together and yet it shows a beautiful intricate pattern on it. For the complete tutorial on Sanjhi, watch the video below.

Origin:
Sanjhi is practised in Mathura and Vrindavan in Uttar Pradesh in India. Though the paper cutting work is done all across the world, Sanjhi is little different. Sanjhi is said to have originated around 400-500 years ago in the 16th or 17th century.

I Adore the Firefly Art Print by The Design Confidential via @thdesconf


At long last I am super excited to annouce Confidential Print Shop is open for business and printable art is first on the menu. I have actually had the shop set up for months, but I was feeling extremely anxious about hitting the publish button on this post. I’m not entirely sure why, but it most likely stems from a fear of failure. Truth be told, setting up a storefront and selling something that is uniquely yours and not made by someone else, is terrifying. Because what if no one cares? What if everyone hates it and never buys a single thing? Does that mean they don’t like you or your work? Is it a reflection of how the public perceives your taste level? As a design professional, this is a monumentally difficult hurdle to jump because the answer is probably yes. Read
